Russell Moore on Wild Things and Sunday School

Russell Moore, in a post discussing the just-released Where the Wild Things Are, offers this poignant thought on the softening of the bible. He says,

“Too many of our Bible study curricula for children declaw the Bible, excising all the snakes and dragons and wildness. We reduce the Bible to a set of ethical guidelines and a text on how gentle and kind Jesus is. The problem is, our kids know there are monsters out there. God put that awareness in them. They’re looking for a sheep-herding dragon-slayer, the One who can put all the wild things under His feet.”

To which I say, “AMEN!!!”

Αυτω η δοξα,

Jason
